It's hard to believe it is springtime already! Everything is happening so quickly, it's as though life is moving as fast as the tiny new sprouts beneath the topsoil that are feeling the pull of the sun as the plants reach for the sky. There is a particular color green I associate with springtime in Eugene— lush, bright, vivid, and alive, accompanied by growth so rapid that if you stand still and attentive, you can actually see certain vines growing, and leaves unfurling.
This year I had the privilege of entering springtime in three different eco-systems, starting in Eugene, then moving to Las Vegas and winding up in Los Angeles in time for the full moon lunar eclipse and a visit with Sage and Jake and family who needed to be there during Blue's spring break. With so much energy and my ongoing yet steadily improving physical limitations, you'd think that I would have collapsed before I ever got to LA— but there is something about grandchildren that renews life, and their love and joy works like an elixir.
Before I get into the joys of grand parenting, I'd like to thank all those who helped Normandi and me in Las Vegas: SheilaZ, you were most gracious and helpful while hosting us at your home and helping us promote our workshop. And thank you for the delicious lunch you made for us and our students, and for the lovely Equinox ceremony at Calico Canyon. Likewise, big hugs and thank you to Katlyn Breene for hosting us at your beautiful home for our Friday evening event, and for your continued commitment to your spiritual community with your Saturday evening Equinox ceremony. You are both ongoing inspirations for Normandi and me.
Jeffrey Mishlove, we thank you for inviting us to be on your TV show, New Thinking Allowed. You brought us to Las Vegas, and we can't wait to post your interviews, which are some of the best, ever! Normandi's first interview (of two), Magic and Initiatory Practices of Ancient Egypt is scheduled for public release on April 14 and mine on Shamanism on April 18, Urls to follow . . .Thank you Jeffrey!
Blue is almost five now, and when she flung herself onto my bed at that magic hour that is too late for children to stay in bed and too early for grandmas to wake up, and while I was still deep asleep, I yelped as I found myself launched straight upwards into a surprisingly chaotic and wonderful day, filled with simple joys and deeply felt expressions of love. Wiley turned one last week, and he is trucking around like a two year old, getting into everything and requiring eyes on, every minute.
Looking at the first few days of spring through the eyes of these children who are just awakening to the springtime of their own lives is instructive on many levels, especially to the many reminders of my own age and mortality. The appreciation with which I face the treasures that are so rich and abundant grows more apparent with each new spring. As Mark and I drove to the airport last week, we were suddenly more thankful than ever before that we made it through another winter, our thirty-first together in Oregon.
As I complete my 73rd year I keep looking for what retirement will look like and feel like, however I am slowly concluding that despite the reduction in travel and the relinquishing of several of my major responsibilities, there seems to be no shortage of requirements to maintain our home and keep things going, so here's what's coming up for me this year, and I hope you will choose to join me for some of these events:
Free Virtual Book Launch Party for The Union of Isis and Thoth, Magic and Initiatory Practices of Ancient Egypt
Wednesday, March 30
My co-author Normandi Ellis (of Awakening Osiris and many other amazing books) and I will be on line between 4:30 and 6:30pm Pacific (7:30-9:30) to discuss our book, answer questions, give at least one initiation, and even send a party favor to each participant, please join us.
Free Planetary Healing Call to Action— Cancer
Monday, April 4th at 6:00pm Pacific
Every month possible since Planetary Healing, Spirit Medicine for Global Transformation by Nicki Scully and Mark Hallert was published in 2011, we have offered a free Call to Action, a teleconference to use the exponential powers of our numbers to engage in the meditations from the book and new ones that have come after in order to create a functional healing community for our selves and our world. In response to requests from a number of our participants, we are devoting the next Call to Action to Cancer, for those dealing with the disease directly, and for those who are supporting family members or loved ones who have some form of this disease. Many of the past calls from the eight years that we did our “Phone Bridges for Healing Cancer” are posted here…
For more information and to register for the upcoming Call…
